So, my clunking sound turned out to be a loose spring and torn rubber seal where the spring sits on the strut resulting in the metal-to-metal clunking that I was hearing. However, right after I picked it up this morning, I got on the freeway and suddenly all these lights and bells and buzzers went off...the Traction Control, the ABS & the Cruise Control quit and the airbag and brake lights went on and the power steering got real sluggish. I went back to the dealer, they hooked it up to the computer and it said one of the wheel sensors was registering 137 mph standing still! ...so they are trying to figure out what the bleep is going on. The "rapid acceleration" in that wheel, but not the others, was causing all the systems to shut off to protect from it perceived as an out of control situation.
Side note: they were out of Lincoln loaners (I had just turned in that nice 2017 MKZ too...) so they put me in one of their other brands: a 2016 Volvo XC60 with only 4500 miles. Not impressed! Had never driven a current Volvo, but had often been curious. I'll take my MKC any day!
